This irregular contest will change each round. Nature poem? Horror story? Whatever.

Image for the Whatever Contest


This is a Whatever text image for my Whatever Contest.

Be sure to click the Plus button (computer's upper right corner) on this contest so you can find it again! *Wink*

This contest will be different each time I post it--different genre, different prompt, different rules, different requirements, etc., depending on my mood and schedule. *Bigsmile*

It's best to click my Plus sign so you can easily keep up with me. Schnujo *Left* That way, when I advertise this contest, you will see it on your newsfeed, assuming you are checking it around that time. *Wink*

If you see a Plus sign by my name, that means you have not clicked it before. I recommend clicking it twice (for the megaphone) to become a Fan so you appear on my Fans list because occasionally I send all my fans GPs, MBs, whatever. *Wink*


"The Quill Awards is often short on short poems, so that's this month's target

There are 2 prompts for June. You may write 2 items, one for each prompt. I will give you 5k per prompt. I've written the prompts so you can easily copy and paste each into your item (a contest request). Note that the length of these prompts is specifically directed at the Best Short Poem, Structured and Best Short Poem, Free Verse categories in "The Quill Awards. They require poems be 15 lines or less. My hope is that there will be a couple of nominations from this month's contest. Below are the prompts for your copying pleasure.

Open Prompt: Write a poem 15 lines or less, Structured or Free Verse, on the topic of your choosing.
Written for "The Whatever Contest." {e:Right} {item:2232242}

NOTE: Occasionally I might offer a prompt that might be too personal to write for the public. In that case, I'll be offering free GPs (probably extra GPs for your "pain and suffering") to anyone who participates, but on the honor system. To help with the honor system, those items will be offered to be written privately only to people who have participated at least 3 times in the last rolling 12 months.
